ICYMI: Veteran asks to go to White House for Birthday! [videos]

President Donald Trump hosted four World War II veterans at the White House, keeping a promise he made to 95-year-old Allen Jones last June.

“Beautiful afternoon in the Oval Office today with a few great American HEROES!” Trump tweeted, with a video showing his June conversation with Jones.

“I’m going to be 95 years of age on April 11 of next year,” the retired sergeant told the president when he met him at a Kansas City VFW event in June of last year. “Hopefully, you will allow me to bring my family into the Oval Office to meet you.”

The president responded with an enthusiastic “Yes!”



Fast forward to Thursday, April 11, 2019, and Jones joined centenarians Floyd Wigfield, Sidney Walton and Paul Kriner inside the Oval Office for a visit with Trump.
